Gibney Dance, founded in 1991 by choreographer Gina Gibney, is a multi-faceted dance organization occupying two locations in New York City. Gibney's Group Study program is a great addition to a dance group’s New York City travel itinerary. Students in the Group Study Program learn from Gibney’s renowned faculty and working artists during their stay, in a range of contexts: master classes, panel discussions, workshops and more. This experience is ideal for groups from schools looking to learn about the NYC contemporary dance scene. Residencies are 100% customizable and can range from one class, to one day, to two days or longer.
Technique & Repertory Classes Choose from the dozens of technique classes offered daily at Gibney, or arrange private master classes.
Community Action Master Classes Experience workshops which explore movement as a tool for change and empowerment, based on Gibney Dance Company’s work with survivors of intimate partner violence and the Artist as Agents of Change program.
Audition Workshops: Mock auditions with working artists allow students to develop the skills and confidence to audition for college programs or find dance work in New York City
Panel Discussions: Private panel discussions are offered covering topics such as: Choreographers & Auditions; Arts & Social Justice; Living and Working in the Arts; Going to College to Dance, and more.
The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries and Career Transition for Dancers also offer panels focused on Injury Prevention and Making a Living in Dance.
